Google de-listing of BBC article 'broke UK and Euro public interest laws' - So WHY do it?

R.Moore

Radio 4 this morning.

This morning Peter Barron (Google's head of communications) was on Radio 4, along with Robert Peston and Barron went on the record to say that it was a commentor who had made the request, not O'Neil.

I don't question the premise that Google is playing games here, but much of this article seems to have ignored this event.

Meet the stealthiest UK startup's app Swiftkey - and its psychic* keyboard

Nexus 4

The Nexus 4 has a stock keyboard that operates in the same way (i.e. like swype, swiftkey, flextT9)

Anyone know if it's swype or something different?

Ice Cream Sandwich still a no-show for most Android users

R.Moore

Jelly Bean arrived on my Nexus S

It was pushed out to me last weekend.

The UI is apparently quicker though I've never had a problem with the UI speed in the past anyway. Some apps definitely appear more sluggish than on ICS though which is a shame.

I'll stick with it for the time being though as it's still nice to use.

Dragon starts final approach to International Space Station

R.Moore

Grabbing seems pretty rubbish though.

When I used to play Elite I just used to line myself up along the rotational axis of the space station, start to turn at the same rate and fire my thrusters. Being picked up by the scruff of the neck doesn't seem to have the same sense of flair.

Sharing the kernel with ubuntu would be nice

I like the idea of running this on a device like this.

Could be the ideal combo for a functional laptop/leisure tab all-in-one device.

What accounts for the missing 10%?

I didn't read any caveats in the article so where did the missing 10% go?

Man recreates ZX81... in Lego

How is this news?

If it had a pcb in it and the ports/keys all worked then you (might) have had a story worth reading.

not wind, methane.

You could store methane in them if this process is economically viable.

Google grabs facial-recognition 'ware firm

R.Moore

They already use this tech

..in Picassa 3. It reliably found hundreds of pics of me and mine at various ages from my photo collection.

I haven't played around with the online albums with Picassa at all so far but when I uploaded these albums to Google+ it didn't seem to upload the tagging data along with the album.

When someone else manually tagged a face in one of my photos though, that tag was posted around the circles the album was shared with.

This doesn't sound too bad but the owner of the face wasn't asked permission.

If you put a CCD into each of Barbie's tits you could film 3d movies with it.

Banshee, Rhythmbox, Amarok all too slow

I've got just under 500Gb of mp3 encoded audio and Banshee, Rhythmbox, Amarok all lock up from time to time when navigatnig around the library, managing playlists and/or playing music.

I need something that can handle a reasonably sized collection more on a lowish spec machine efficiently (atom processor with 3Gb ram).

Any suggestions?

Did I fall asleep?

I'm in the UK and I get emails that are sent to xxx@googlemail.com and xxx@gmail.com and as far as I can tell I always have.

Did I miss something?

New drug spray 'makes men as soppy as girls'

R.Moore

As I expected.

This has only been seen to work on Germans. There's no evidence it would actually work on us.
